Irving Harper is a renowned industrial designer of the 20th century. He has worked as the director of design at George Nelson Associates, Inc. and is the creator of the Marshmallow Sofa, which became an iconic logo for Herman Miller.

Irving Harper: Works in Paper is a book collated by Skira Rizzoli publishing of all the incredible paper sculptures by the artist .

His work is fascinating for the fact that the results look way ahead of his time and look completely computer-animated. I am especially drawn to the owl sculpture for the detail and precision that had been executed throughout the work.

The artist's lean towards experimentation towards different techniques is apparent and thus provides his body of work with a diverse and interesting quality.
